Best Collar for New Whippet Pup

by Janette
(South Carolina)

What size collar would I get an 8 week old whippet pup?

We'll be getting a new whippet pup soon and I want to have a collar for her before I pick her up at the airport so I can let her out of the crate to do her business ASAP.

I've only had large breed dogs in the past and don't think that I should get the same size I did for our Dane mix...

ANSWER:

You are definitely right, the Dane mix collar won't do for your whippet pup! And it is a very good idea to be ready for an emergency.

Such a young whippet puppy in an unfamiliar situation might be quite difficult to control with a regular collar, I would rather use a nylon harness for small dogs… and be ready with a newspaper or a puppy pad.

Once safely at home you can start collar training your pup with a light, adjustable nylon collar.

When your whippet is comfortable with the nylon collar it will be time to begin leash training, first just letting her drag a nylon leash for a short time and then gradually build her leash skills.

I would wait to buy a proper whippet collar until she is older, used to collar and leash and past the chewing stage.

Congratulations for your new whippet pup!

Whippet Collars

by Susan

My whippet managed to slip out of his collar today and gave me a scare.

What are the best collars for whippets and where can I find them?

ANSWER:

The safest collars for walks are the martingale collars. They tighten gently if your whippet backs up.

For everyday use around the house I like the traditional wide hound collars.

For more info about collars and where to find them look at this page dedicated to whippet collars

I have a whippet dog in Costa Rica. My question is: where can I find a nice collar (Arabic style) for my whippet in US?

A friend of mine is right now in Orlando for vacation, I would like to know a dog store so I can tell her exactly where to go and buy it!

Can you help me?


ANSWER:

Unfortunately I don't know of any whippet shop in Orlando.

For me, the best source of collars of excellent quality and value is e-bay.

I listed in the page above same auctions.

English leather is of great quality and the collars will last for years.

You don't have to bid, often the "buy it now" option is available and the sellers ship everywhere.
